Babies begin learning the minute they are born. We're dedicated to helping prepare children for lifelong learning.
Studies show that children who spend their time with parents and caregivers who love, nurture and encourage them are better prepared to build important school readiness skills as they grow older. These types of continuous supportive environments help children develop skills during the critical early years that they can continue to grow throughout their lives, helping them achieve their dreams in the future.
Project Eagle prepares children for lifelong learning by providing:
- Early developmental screening and referral services through our Connections program.
- High-quality, full-day, full-year center-based early childhood education services through our Educare Kansas City program.
- Home Visiting programs for pregnant women and children ages birth to three, including Early Head Start Home Visiting, MIECHV, and ABC.
During the pandemic, we pivoted to provide remote services to families through virtual home visits, video lessons, phone calls, and communication through various learning apps. Project Eagle staff also collaborated with community partners to refer families for additional supports like rental assistance, Pandemic EBT services, community food distribution sites, and mental health services
